    I know it probably isn't a big deal, but after downloading and upgrading to Mountain Lion, I have noticed that when I open the Mac App Store, under purchases and next to Mountain Lion is says, "download" and not "installed" like some of my other apps I have purchased through the store. Anyone else run into this? Anything I should worry about or look into? Will I still be able to receive updates through the Mac App Store?

    Lion and ML show it this way. I assume the server versions do that too. I guess that that is the default behavior for the MAS. No need to worry.

    It's because the App Store is showing you the status of the ML Installer, not the OS itself. You download the 4.34GB file, it installs, and then the file is deleted. The same thing happens with Lion.
